Ellen can eat after all, only in a grotesquely violent way.
- Damn you, last panel, the rest of the page was nice and you come in looking all wonky!
- I'm doing my experimentation on the French page since it has less traffic. Layout updates show up there earlier, and so do certain style changes. For the next weeks, it'll have hand lettering, at least until I know if the readers like it. You can visit it and if you tell me "OMG your handwriting is just perfect for the style I'll give you a cookie if you do it for this version too!!!" then maybe I'll hand-letter both. (It's kinda tricky since there is only one original, but it can be done.)
Ha! She found a way...a gross and messy way...to eat!
On the last panel, I wouldn't have noticed much, but of course you mention it and I started looking for the 'wonky'. The page as a whole is still really good and does the job.
But yeah, the big wonky thing I noticed, is that the floor becomes slanted with how you have his leg, and the shadow lines beneath him point off in support of the slant.
Easy fixes for next though, just scoot his right leg back and over to line up better with his spine, sweep his left leg back out, and make his shadow lines horizontal. Problem solved.
You do very good work. The detail and backgrounds are always excellent. A little slip now and then keeps you (if you will pardon the pun) on your toes.
The annoying thing with the occasional messed up panel, is that I don't see them coming before they're in my face. Sometimes it becomes apparent at the sketching stage, but even that isn't always fixable without redoing the whole thing; often it comes from the composition, and it's frustrating to have several great elements sketched, and have to waste them all if I want to get rid of the mistake.
"She's a maniac, maniac on the floor! And she's eating like she's never ate before!"
This is the theme song in my head for this page. I regret nothing.
I understand. But I still must do what I must do. Sorry my friend.
